The Divine Dance

By Richard Rohr

Franciscan priest Richard Rohr considers The Divine Dance the most important book he has ever written. His thesis is that whatever is going on in God is like dancing, a flowing of life. Knowledge of God is participatory; it is knowing from within, from participating in the dance. Sin is stopping the flow of the dance. Moreover, he says, “What physicists and contemplatives alike are confirming is that the foundational nature of reality is relational; everything is in relationship with everything else”
